    Couldn't believe my eyes.

    I took my wife to the grocery store this evening. I don't do
    that very often. But there was a few things I wanted.

    Untill I got there...

    Oreos at $4.85 a package? I mean, these weren't even
    doublestuffs. Just the dunking kind...

    Now, you know I'm a fat feller. And I dearly love my Oreo
    snacks.

    I just couldn't believe it !!!

    There I was, a growed man, crying in the middle of the
    cookie isle. Just a wailing my little eyes out.

    But I put a package in my grocery cart anyway. And I tried
    to push my buggy. But I just couldn't do it.

    It broke my heart, but I had to break down and put the Oreos
    back on the shelf. I held it in my hands, and I smelled them.

    Oh, so good.

    But I wiped my eyes, and layed them carefully on the shelf.

    Does anyone know the phone number of the Nabisco company?
    I really need to talk to somebody...



    Spook....the sad, fat guy.




    I need a cookie....

    That's the reason I try not to go down the cookie aisle.

    I'm (usually) a honest sort of guy.

    And I've never considered myself as a part of the
    black-market...

    But if I heard of a deal on some Oreos somewhere...

    Can they be mailed in a plain brown wrapper...?



    Spook...who wasn't meant to go on a diet tonight.

    [​IMG]That is so sad. Is nothing safe. Oreo's now, what is next? Milk is supposed to go through the roof too. Guess I'd better bake some brownies and buy a cow[​IMG]

    Maybe you can get them half price if you only get the middles?
